Masamune Satoru died while still relatively young and is remembered for his interpretation of Bizen wares from what was perhaps the “golden age” during the Momoyama period (1573 – 1603). From 1975 when he opened his own kiln, his work was selected ten times for the Okayama Art exhibition and six times for the Japan Traditional Art & Craft exhibition. Beside these honours, he was awarded a special prize at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum in 1989 and the “Grand Prize” the following year. This vase dates from the mid 1980s when he was known by the name Satoru but he was later known as Moriyasu and formerly as Kengo. As with all items of this site, there is no damage or restoration, although the vase does appear to have been used. The vase has a stamped cloth, information in Japanese as well as the signed wooden box.
